Advanced Auto Fabrication has the plug an play push to start kit for your Spec E46 has been waiting for.
Now that the new Spec E46 tune has the EWS function deleted, we are finally building a push button start kit that gets rid of the key all together! The AAF Push to Start mounts with factory holes and hardware, where the turn signal switch was. This is a very easy plug and play kit that can install in a matter of minutes. There is no wire-splicing at all, it is truly plug and play.
The bracket is made from lightweight aluminum and powder coated black for a high quality and durable finish. One rocker switch is fitted with an illuminated back light to indicate “Ignition – ON”, while the other all-red rocker switch is a crank switch.
Notice: With the “EWS Delete” ECU, some components can be removed. However the EWS box cannot be simply unplugged. The EWS box doubles as a starter relay. Your two options are to 1) keep the EWS box plugged in with no wiring harness changes, or 2) to modify the OEM electrical harness and install an independent starter relay.
Components that can be deleted are items such as the instrument cluster and the key itself. These items can simply be unplugged and removed with no adverse effects.
